What's going on? Everybody rare out here with DPMNE Sports talk here, live on SportsCastr and on the railroad network.
Thank you, everybody who's coming in here live on SportsCastr.
Thank you to everybody who's listening to the podcast.
Thank you, everybody.
Who's maybe watching the replay here on SportsCastr? I really appreciate you guys all coming in and hanging out with me.
I know that things have been a little weird with schedules.
We try to figure things out.
I promise you, in the next couple of days will be able to tell you what's going on on Wednesday's and maybe Fridays.
And what's happened with Corner.
What's happened with me if we roll along here on the railroad network, but we got things we gotta figure out but appreciate you all coming in here and appreciate you all showing some love.
And we got a theme tonight and it's about Odell Beckham.
Jr wasn't originally planning for the theme, but it's all just kind of rolled into one man.
Odell Beckham has been in the well.
He's been in the headlines for the last couple of days, and maybe not all for the right things.
The Cleveland Browns are struggling.
He's having temper tantrums on the sideline who's been banned from L S U.
He claims to be immune to co vid 19 virus like, I mean, he just continuously puts his foot in his mouth over and over and over again.
And I just gotta wonder At which point is Odell Beckham Jr gonna learn, man, I maybe I just need to shut up and play football.
Um and I don't know, dude, it's It's not even like he's tie.
It's not like and I know that sounds awful because we've heard that before.
But, I mean, we're talking about a situation where it's just it's so weird to talk about it.
Let's talk about this this news right now that just came out a little while ago that Odell Beckham has been banned from the L S U facilities for two years, two years after he was caught handing out some money to some L S U players back in January, As we all know, Joe Burrow and L s u they went and won the national championship.
Odell Beckham Jr was a former L s U standout receiver and, well, good old l went on the field and started handing out $100 bills of some of the players.
Ended up handing out $2000 in total.
Also got into a little bit of trouble when he decided Thio slapped the rear end of a police officer while celebrating in the dressing room.
L s u did a full internal investigation.
Put some sanctions on themselves and out of it.
Odell, back in junior, has now been banned from the facilities to go cheer on his Tigers and hang out for the next two years.
But again, man, like I'm saying, he's just ended up in the headlines for all of the wrong reasons.
Just an absolute standout receiver, Okay, But he always just seems to be getting himself in trouble.
And it's stupidity.
Whether it's boat rides when he played for the Giants, whether it's, you know, weird ***ual activity being revealed on a podcast, uh, whether it's conclude aiming that when he was sent home sick that him and co vid 19 have a mutual understanding and that he could be, um, he's immune to the virus.
Poor Odell just keeps putting himself in that news and in that sort of spotlight that I'm sure people don't or I'm sure that the Cleveland Browns don't want him to be in.
So as we go along through this whole procedure and we start investigating it, I think as a Patriots fan, one thing we have to ask ourselves is, Hey, man, do you want a guy like Odell Beckham Jr.
Representing the New England Patriots? Because, as I said before, the rumors are out that Odell well, trade rumors were starting to rumble, and there's been forever been linked to the New England Patriots.
Here's what I got to say, man.
If available, the Patriots need Odell Beckham Jr.
You know, about six or seven weeks ago, rumors started coming out of Cleveland that there were maybe considering trading Odell Beckham Jr.
Naturally, the New England Patriots seemed like the ideal landing spot for Beckham.
The Patriots apparently were very close to swinging a deal with the New York Giants in 2018 but the story goes that the Giants started having second thoughts and decided not to trade back.
Um, of course, New York would move back into the Browns the following season and since the day he arrived in Cleveland, it seemed destined for him to be traded out of Cleveland sooner or later.
Now, after the Browns got blown out against the Baltimore Ravens Week one this season, Odell Beckham trade rumors really got going again.
But then the Browns went on a four game winning streak, and with Beckham being a major factor in that offense and that kind of quiet down all the trade talks, especially in the media, apparently losing one game to a divisional rival can change everything.
The Browns didn't look good in their 38 to 7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.
Odell Beckham Jr.
I think, as we all know, is a passionate player.
When things were going well and the team is winning, he's he's able to harness that energy and make explosive plays on the field.
When he's not playing well, he gets into fights with kicking nets.
And apparently the Browns weren't happy with Beckham's behavior in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.
Beckham was seen yelling on the sidelines following an interception, and towards the end of the game he was spotted by CBS cameras tossing his helmet and walking the sidelines and socks and yelling at hecklers with time, Let the play on the clock now.
Earlier this week, Nick right of Fox boards one stirred the pot when he said he'd received a text from a trusted source in Cleveland who told right that the Beckham trade rumors air starting to stir up again.
Nick right? And the rest of the media and anybody who remotely pays attention to football immediately linked Odell Beckham Jr to the New England Patriots.
Now it appears that Patriot fans are split between not wanting Bill Belichick to make the trade and maybe a little bit of false hope if the Browns were actually considering trading Beckham.
The link to the New England Patriots makes so much sense for a lot of reasons.
Everybody is well aware of the infatuation between both parties and what they have for each other.
Belichick has already tried to trade for Beckham, and the only thing that is really predictable about Bill Belichick is that if he likes a player, he will do what he can to try to bring him on to the Patriots.
We've seen that with Rodney Harrison, Chad Johnson, Antonio Brown, Michael Bennett.
Sometimes it works out like it did with Harrison.
Sometimes it doesn't really click like with Johnson.
Other times it doesn't work, like with Bennett, and sometimes it turns into a disaster like it did with Brown.
But regardless, if Beckham is actually available, it shouldn't surprise anybody if Belichick would try to grab them on the other side of it.
Beckham has always expressed his desire to play for the Patriots and to play with Tom Brady and Belichick.
Now Brady is no longer with New England, but the appeal to play under Bill Belichick is still there.
And perhaps Beckham would be able to channel his energy and passion under Belichick in the Patriots way.
Outside of mutual respect and admiration, the Patriots could also use a legitimate weapon who Cam Newton could throw to.
It's not a hot take, or even a stretch to say that the Patriots passing game doesn't intimidate anybody.
That was obvious last Saturday when New England took on the Denver Broncos with Julian Edelman struggling through years of abuse on his body, McKeel Harry not taking the leap that many hoped for, and Tamir Birds playing time being way too high on the depth chart.
The tight end position.
Denver had zero issues going into man coverage and sending blitz after blitz at poor Cam Newton.
And when New England was showing an obvious run play, they blitzed.
Backup is a freak of a receiver, and on Lee having a limited knowledge of the Patriots playbook, people would be able to see an instant impact on this Patriots offense.
As of now, all the defense has to jam Newton and stopping the run.
Beckham would bring a new, dynamic dynamic that would force defense is to send double teams, drop in his own and respect the other receivers on the team.
Right now, nobody respects the Patriots Pasching, and that's an issue that's an issue in today's NFL.
The days of run, run pass are long gone, and having Cam Newton will go to waste if the Patriots can't properly execute our Pos and run actions and play action.
It's a very similar situation to what we're seeing in Baltimore, the only difference being that Lamar Judge legs in his tight ends.
Whereas in New England, Newton can't get it done with his legs all the time.
But he can do it.
But the combination of Ryan ISO and Devon Asi Asi have been, well, pretty lame, most of all for the Patriots success in the past, and game has come from East to West.
The only time that Newton can attack the middle of the field is with Ryan is Oh, and short passes the Julian Edelman and James White.
And besides flashes here and there, that strategy has been constantly ineffective.
The reaction to the possibility of Beckham joining the Patriots has been mixed.
I've seen some Twitter users begin begging Belichick to make the call, believing that Odell would be the X factor on the Patriots offense.
On the flip side, there were Patriot fans claiming that Beckham doesn't fit the system, that he couldn't comply to the Patriots way.
One Twitter user said, Quote, I don't want another headcase.
And then another responded with agreement, saying the Patriots already have enough problems with Cam Newton.
I'm not sure where this user gets the audacity to talk about Newton like that.
All we've seen is Newton act like the constant professional and everything that the organization has said about him is how polarizing of a leader he is now.
I know that most of us are used to Tom Brady either screaming or belittling receivers or pouting on the sideline.
But Patriot fans have to accept that.
It's okay for players to show personality the same way that everybody bought into Rob Gronkowski.
Odell Beckham Jr has the it factor and possesses all of those tangible skills that coaches look for.
All right, these kind of receivers are not made available every day.
And I think if I think if he wasn't enough to push the Patriots over the line this season, the combination nation of Cam Newton and Odell Beckham Jr.
2021 is the best starting point I can think of for the Patriots.
Now again, it is what it is.
Does he come with issues? Yeah, yeah, a lot of guys that come with issues, though.
I mean, let's go back and look at Tom Brady.
We saw those reports that started coming out a few months ago that Patriots veterans in the locker room or like man, if he's gonna have this attitude, then I hope he doesn't come back.
I hope he does go because we can't have another season with him.
There's no disrespect to Tom Brady and how he plays the game of football, but he wasn't happy.
It was just a different kind of issue.
And yeah, oh, Dal will bring a little bit of pizazz and a little bit of drama.
But, I mean, the upside could be through the roof, right? Mhm, Because getting your hands on a guy like Odell or DeAndre Hopkins like, how often do you see those guys change hands? Maybe one guy a year.
I mean, most of them don't even get to free agency and their with their team for almost ever.
They start moving when they're when they're no longer the dominant forces they used to be in.
The Patriots have a could have the opportunity to possibly get him in his prime.
You know, people haven't been happy with the ballistics use of a first round pick bringing Odell.
You got the salary cap, right? You got the space to do it.
You're gonna be one of the more richer teams in the league next year.
Beckham is still a very young man.
A 27 years old is actually pretty affordable.
I think about 15 year for what he could bring.
Get him to buy into the Patriots way, man, and you're laughing, Savino Gambino saying.
What could we actually offer for O B O B J Man? I'm Look, if look, if Cleveland wants the first round, I'm giving it to him because it's not like we're in the hunt for Trevor Lawrence this year.
The Patriots needs air obvious in the draft next year.
Wide receiver and some defensive pieces, especially around the defensive line and the edge and that kind of thing.
Some offensive lineman, those kind of players that you can get a little bit later in the draft.
And with Odell, you'd have your true number one locked up.
And when you have a number one like Odell, it makes guys like Nikkila, Harry and Jacoby Meyers a little bit more valuable because Odell takes so much attention the other way.
This isn't just to move for this year.
It's a move for next year as well.

All right, so another story I want to get into is gonna be on Anton Antonio Brown.
But I saw a comment in the section here from Shavon Gambino patriots.
Facebook Group was calling for Jared Stidham to start all week.
Ah, man, listen, First of all, I don't like I don't even participates in Patriots Facebook anymore.
I've left all the pages other.
Just a bunch of angry old white people, if you ask me.
Um, not everybody, obviously, but majority and I don't like their opinions.
I mean, this is the same ones that said the Cam Newton when fit this team.
And I mean, like, how many? I don't know how many times I could describe the turnaround of what the cir***stances surrounding that Denver game was last week.
Look, if Cam Newton comes out and wets the bed this week against the 40 Niners, then we can have a conversation.
But I'm not gonna even engage in that kind of conversation until we see after a full week of practice, David Andrews is back, you know, Then we can start on the conversation says bro, they're gonna want Chase window, which, at least honestly, the second half of the season, I think we're gonna have to make things right and bring back a B.
Well, first of all, they're not gonna get Chase one of it.
And I'm gonna ask you Chase, one of which, how often in football do you see a player for player trade? Its draft picks for players.
So they're not gonna ask for Chase one of its They might throw it out there.
Bill Belichick is gonna say no, you like.
You hardly ever see a player for player.
And when you do, it's usually a much lesser player going back for somebody else.
As for a B, well, I'm gonna get a Navy because apparently the Seattle Seahawks are very close to possibly making a move.
Week eight for Antonio Brown.
They say there's other teams involved.
I highly, highly doubt if you're New England Patriot fan that you should even get in your mind that Antonio Brown is gonna be coming back to the Patriots and it's It's not that your thought process is out of whack.
I love to see Antonio Brown come back to the Patriots.
I just don't see it happening.
I mean, Antonio Brown made the dynasty.
Um, it talked about how disappointed Robert Kraft was.
How first of all hell hesitant Robert Kraft was from bringing Antonio Brown in in the first place.
And I'm disappointed he was when it didn't work.
I just do not see the organization bringing Antonio Brown back.
Let's also not forget what I was.
One thing that I learned in that Dynasty book is that Robert Kraft could be petty when you upset him.
And, uh, Antonio Brown took some shots at Robert Kraft that Robert Kraft is not gonna appreciate.
I can promise you that much.
He is not gonna appreciate the things that he said.
But the Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, on the other hand, was asked about the teams reported interest to pursue Antonio Brown after his NFL suspension ends.
And here's what he said, he said, quote, we have endeavored to be in on everything that's going on, and GM John Snyder has done a marvelous job of always being tuned into what's happening, and this is no exception.
So we'll see what happens as we go forward And that's how he end.
And that's how he responded that in the Seahawks there, well, there, 50 this season.
And they already have one of the best offenses in the NFL, with quarterback Russell Wilson and White Out D K.
Metcalf basically leading the way.
Um, if the Seahawks are able to add Brown, then they would arguably have the most explosive offense in the entire league, maybe one of most explosive offenses in the history of football.
I'm gonna be completely honest with you on that one, but I think what the Cleveland Browns are gonna have to figure out is, How does Antonio where does Antonio Brown's head right now? Because last year was a mitigated disaster for him off the field.
I mean, what we saw in my against Miami was brilliant.
From what we heard, he was great in the locker room in New England.
Now, one thing I will say about Antonio Brown is I can't remember the last time I really heard from him or heard about him.
He's not really capturing headlines right now.
He sort of just doing his thing.
And I don't know, perhaps perhaps Antonio Brown is getting better.
I don't know, but that will be the interesting piece.
I mean, you think about what teams would be interested.
I mean, well, obviously, the Patriots need a receiver, but I don't think he'll be interested.
I mean, I think the last thing Seattle needs a receiver, but here he goes, and at some point, Josh Gordon.
I mean, you always got tired of lock it on the team. That's crazy.
Is this the team is, you know, just San Francisco.
Try to pick him up to try to strengthen that offense.
Does Houston think **** if we have a chance, we gotta bring in somebody I don't know.
Probably not, though, because there's just trade chatter swarming the Houston Texans right now.
I mean, we've seen every receiver.
I mean, there's been people talking about J.
Watt could be on the move, J.
Watt Last night corner and I joked around about J. J.
Watt because we saw a tweet by, I think was Evan Lazar, who just said, If I'm the Patriots, I'm calling the Texas right now just to ask about JJ, and I was like, Don't play with my heart like that because I know the Patriots don't need You know, J J.
Watt right now or not.
Their biggest need.
I'd give up Julian Edelman for J. J. Watt.
I'm honest with you. That's how much I love J.
Just the heart and soul of America.
Watt 31 get a maybe 23 solid years left.
I mean, it's ah, like, what do you do if you're the Texans? Start over with.
Just keep the Shawn Watson and try to figure things out from there.
This is probably a brutal time to go into a rebuild right after you just paid your quarterback, isn't it? I don't know.
There's, ah, a lot of weird things.
I'm gonna throw another scenario that you though, and I wanna go back.
Thio Antonio Brown.
I want to consider chiefs of, like, $5 million left.
Like what? If Beach calls a B and says, Hey, man, come take the veteran minimum.
Come play eight weeks, come win a Super Bowl and get paid.
Next year, San Antonio Brown is gonna be paying signing some long term contract.
This season is gonna be a one year.
It's gonna be a one and done.
And then you could try to re sign with somebody next year.
I mean, from the Kansas City Chiefs.
He brought Levian Bell.
Why not just bring, you know, bring to the killer bees reunite them? I don't think Levian Bell is gonna go on have any disrespect for Patrick Mahomes.
Like, you know, I've talked about Travis Kelsey before.
I think he could very easily handle any sort of big personality in the locker room.
I mean, if I'm Kansas City, why am I not trying to make that move? Because see whether chief fans want to admit it or not The window of superiority that they have right now, like absolutely an issue in the next, you know, two years.
So if they're really serious about back to back or three in a row or whatever they may be looking at, Antonio Brown could really help with that.
I'm gonna want you to imagine Antonio Brown, Tyree kill Sammy Watkins, like, mix it up with the running backs, and they're tight ends.
God, I mean, who would want to face the Kansas City Chiefs like that? It makes me sad when I think about that kind of line up because I think about Week two in Miami last year and Tom Brady has Josh Gordon.
Julian Edelman, Antonio Brown.
Philip Door Set is your number four.
He's like, Wow, what a Like what? A star studded lineup before the end of the season.
Josh Gordon and Antonio Brown.
We're gone from that number four spot, which was the perfect today in Miami that day, too, because of where he was sitting.
He he loses his job, that Jacoby Meyers of all people they bring him.
Mohammed Sunu. That doesn't work.
You know, it's really funny how Muhammad's new turns around and says, Well, I had to leave.
The Patriots was a money thing.
It wasn't a money thing you didn't perform.
Think Belichick's gonna p $6.
5 million to not perform? Oh, what could have Bean if you're in New England Patriots fan and that famous of Brady, Adelman and Brown and Gordon sitting on the bench and Philip Door sat walking by and it's funny to think about it, cause now it's Cam Newton Edelman, the Kill Harry, the mere bird.
It's Strange Man.
Tomorrow night on D.
and commentary where our future story is gonna be about Julian Edelman and what we're seeing out of him this year.
And Josh McDaniels had some I don't Wanna Come Strong words is not the right thing to say, But Josh McDaniels had some motivating words for Julian Edelman, and I think for himself and for the whole offense in general just basically about how everybody needs to start stepping up and doing their job.
A couple of numbers tomorrow night is a little bit surprising because I had the Patriots depth chart.
All wrong depth chart is based on playtime and snap counts, and some of you might be shocked who's actually the wide receiver one on the New England Patriots right now.
But you have to wait till tomorrow night, 9 p.m. Eastern time.
When I'm here with my boy Calm going on with the New England Patriot, something going on with the NFL and even though we're gonna bounce back and forth and back and forth and back and forth, it's always going to come back to the Patriots because it always does.
